It was another of those quiet mornings on the lake, the surface so smooth. A good morning for the water fowl as well.
This mallard took off right in front of me. I was fortunate to be ready for the take-off.
I also had my first loon sighting of the season, a pair near the south end of the lake.
A trio of merganzer ducks having a debate.
And, of course, the turtles were sunning themselves on the logs. They are so nervous that is it hard to get good photos of them. They hear you coming, even in a quiet kayak, and slip into the water before you can get the camera ready. These two were a bit more obliging.
What a great way to start the day! I hope yours is off to a good start, too.
